I need a thread to share all the crazy stuff coming out of my mother's mouth. I can't just keep making mini rant posts.
Today. I was chatting with my mom and sharing with her the weird feeling I had last night. I was up peeing, and I had my hands on the sides of my baby belly, doing the get off my bladder lift, and I could feel gas bubbles from what must have been behind my uterus echoing around in my uterus, kind of like a racket ball echoing around in a court. It was weird, but not alarming.
Mom asks me if I was sure that the baby was growing inside my womb, not outside. "They could tell that on your sonogram right, they looked for that?" I laughed and refused to answer her on the basis of how crazy a question that was. I just told her that if that was the case I would have had some sever complications by 18 weeks. Her response was that babies are born all the time that did not grow in a woman's uterus. WTF?
I think my mother, who used to be very educated, rational, and thoughtful has gone around the bend.
